Fire Text

In this tutorial I will be teaching you how to make fire text like in the preview shown below:

Fire Text Tutorial

Start out by making a new Grayscale document. I used 500 x 300 so I can have a lot of room to move around in. Now make your background black. Take your text tool and type out whatever you want to be engulfed in flames. Make it white.

Now go to Image> Rotate Canvas> Rotate 90 CW.

Now go Filter> Stylize> Wind. Go from left at the lowest setting. Then do the Wind filter again with the same settings.

Image > Rotate Canvas> Rotate 90 degrees CCW.

Filter> Blur > Gaussian Blur. Use the any setting between 1 – 3.

Now go Filter> Blur> Motion Blur. 75 degrees and around 20 -30 strength.

Filter> Distort> Ripple. Amount: 100 Size: Medium.

Now Go to Image> Mode> Index. Then go to Image> Mode> Color Table and select Black Body.
